“Aaron R. Even’s HE COMES IN FIRE is as tightly wound and intricately constructed as a clock–a fresh and brilliant re-casting of the suspense novel by one of the South’s finest young writers. Here at last, for all of us who have been waiting for it, is a novel that is as beautifully written as it is gripping, a tale of religion, murder, drugs, buried treasure, and arson told with a literary sensibility. I read it breathlessly. I loved it.”
— Davis McCombs, author of Dismal Rock and Ultima Thule
“A gothic atmosphere looms over the mysterious world of HE COMES IN FIRE like dense storm clouds, imbuing the scenes with an electric tension. Aaron R. Even’s novel is compelling and suspenseful. Every character and description glows in the eerily beautiful light of his controlled, precise, and meticulously crafted prose.”
— Alexander Parsons, author of In the Shadows of the Sun
